The Man United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has long been planning on a system where he could fit in Paul Pogba and Fernades into the team . Paul Pogba who is primarily a central midfielder is going to be playing the no 10 position (attacking midfielder) while Bruno Fernades will be playing the No 8 role (central midfielder). 

The French man who wanted to leave the club for a new challenge and have been linked to big clubs like Real Madrid and return to his former club, Juventus but with Bruno Fernades arrival from Sporting CP has been given him a new lease of life in the club.

The connection of the duo have been superb before the halt of football due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Man Utd boss reportedly said he will find a good connection between the two as he said “Good players can always play together”. 

Bruno Fernades has 18 goals and 18 assists in his 37 appearances for the club while Paul Pogba who has been out of action since last year could only secure 2 assists in his 8 appearances for the club.

The French player is now back to full fitness but still may not match up with Fernades speed but with time the versatile player will meet up and who knows whether he will even surpass his mate.

 Man United who are currently fifth on the table will test run the new look of their midfield when they face Spurs next Friday when the competition fully begins.
